Frankston Basketball are proud to announce on the 4th August at 7:00 PM we will be hosting an exhibition game between SEABL Frankston Blues Men and Washington Huskies.

The Washington Huskies men's basketball team represents the University of Washington in NCAA Division I college basketball competing in the Pac-12 Conference. The Huskies have produced NBA stars such as Nate Robinson, Brandon Roy and Isaiah Thomas in recent years. 

"For the 2nd straight year the Frankston Blues are hosting a PAC 12 College. Last year we played Cal Berkeley and this year we play University of Washington. UW have a rich history of producing NBA players (15 since 2005) and just a few weeks ago had two players drafted in the 1st Round. UW have a Freshmen point guard named Markelle Fultz who is predicted to be a top 3 lottery pick in the 2017 draft so he will be one to watch closely.

"They also have one of the most respected head coaches in the NCAA in Lorenzo Romar. He has been at UW since 2002 and he also played in the NBA for many years in the 80’s.

"The game is a great chance for our Blues players to compete against one of the best Colleges in the USA and for our young juniors watching, it’s a chance for them to dream big and hope they can play at that level one day.

-Steve Blackley, Frankston Basketball High Performance Manager

"It will be a great game for us to play. The under 20's will be able to learn alot from a D-1 program. 

“Many of them have aspirations of playing at that level so the size, speed and athleticism is something many of them need to be exposed to. 

“As a team, it will be a good challenge for us and we are welcoming of the opportunity.” 

-Dain Swetalla, Blues starting big man
